Now revised and expanded, this book covers all aspects of Keum-boo, an ancient Korean technique in which thin sheets of gold are fused to silver. For metalsmiths, non-metalsmiths and those who work in precious metal clay, the techniques described in this book provide a simple and relatively inexpensive way to add the luster of gold to silver work. This expanded edition includes new tips for cutting the gold and compares a torch and various hot plates and introduces the reader to the UltraLite kiln, a tool perfectly suited for Keum-boo. 90 color photos. 64 pages.
